THE TIME FOR YOU IS NOW.
CHOOSE TO TAKE ACTION.
Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Sometimes, seeking help from a certified expert is the best way to put things into perspective. As a committed, professional counseling center, your well-being and mental strength is our number one priority. We are happy to guide you through all of life’s challenges with the attention and care you deserve.
We enjoy working with each client individually to match their treatment needs and desired changes with the method of treatment. We work with children, adolescents, and adults. We specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ individuals, those living with the impact of single incident or complex PTSD, and addictions. We focus on resolving distressing and/or traumatic life experiences. These experiences often keep us stuck in behaviors that are baffling and even debilitating at times. Efforts to change often feel overwhelming and defeating. Through EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) and other focused strategies, we have assisted many clients with reprocessing the impact of ongoing or critical incident abuse, internalized homophobia, the trauma and abuse from growing up LGBTQIA+, as well as subjective forms of abuse. The goal of our therapeutic process is the implementation of new behavioral patterns and positive beliefs about oneself. We believe the reprocessing of psychological distress provides individuals in-depth healing and renewed emotional freedom.
We currently utilize EMDR in conjunction with other therapeutic strategies (e.g., art therapy, DBT, and MBCT) to help individuals reprocess psychological difficulties connected to addictive behaviors, traumatic life experiences, as well as grief/loss. We also utilize EMDR to assist clients in overcoming performance anxiety (e.g., athletic performance, test anxiety). In addition, we also leverage an addiction recovery model to treat eating disorders, gambling addictions, substance abuse, and other behavioral addictions.
We work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN STARTING THERAPY
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life, your personal history relevant to your issue, and report progress (or any new insights gained) from the previous therapy session. Depending on your specific needs, therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with more difficult patterns or your desire for more personal development. Either way, it is most common to schedule regular sessions with your therapist (usually weekly).
It is important to understand that you will get more results from therapy if you actively participate in the process. The ultimate purpose of therapy is to help you bring what you learn in session back into your life. Therefore, beyond the work you do in therapy sessions, your therapist may suggest some things you can do outside of therapy to support your process - such as reading a pertinent book, journaling on specific topics, noting particular behaviors or taking action on your goals. People seeking psychotherapy are ready to make positive changes in their lives, are open to new perspectives and take responsibility for their lives.
